Discovery District

The Discovery District is a reimagined research park combining dynamic academic spaces, new amenities, and public-private partnerships. A public-private partnership between Corporate Office Properties Trust (COPT) and the University of Maryland, the Discovery District offers flexible office spaces for start-up companies, larger technology clients, and more. Featuring attractions like The Hotel at the University of Maryland and a unique food, arts and entertainment experience envisioned by Scott Plank of WarHorse Cities, the Discovery District will be a hub of activity and innovation.

“In the Discovery District, our faculty, students, and businesses will work to turn knowledge into jobs. The District’s facilities and amenities will quicken the pulse of research, innovation, and learning, creating economic and social benefits for Maryland and beyond.”
-Wallace D. Loh, President, University of Maryland
“We are thrilled to be part of the Discovery District, and honored to continue our successful partnership with the University of Maryland. With world-class academics and research, as well as the new amenities that the Discovery District has to offer, we are well positioned to attract the area's top businesses and organizations to College Park.”
-Stephen E. Budorick, President & CEO, COPT
